I like art and use most mediums. My favourits are pencil, pastel pencils,charcoal and acrylics' I like gardening and fishing and 2 years ago I got out my old Fuji Finepix and went clicking witha girl friend and have been hooked ever since. Love travelling and nice food. love weekend markets and second hand shops. like people and love life with a passion.My eyes are the mirrors that frame the worlds beauty on my LCD camera screen and save it on my flash card to print. Life is a freebie and a magical gift

Hi Eva. Thanks for the comments. The power lines are a PAIN but my cloning skills SUCK & I actually make the image WORSE. However, THIS is WHY I am learning layers. So yes I WILL do another edit by removing the current sky & replacing it wit a sky that was nicely shot and without those ANNOYING power lines...LOL they suck
Thanks Eva on my reflection shot. I have the same tameron lens that Mario Vargas has w/o the stabelization. I was in a hurry & shot this handheld with it zoomed all the way out at the 200mm. Should have used my tripod but my ride was in the road & I had no time to 'set up'. One of those times where you just 'shoot & hope for the best'
Thanks for the comments Eva. Yes I understand. In my area graffiti (by gangs) and vandalism has become a BIG problem with these bridges here. I have a contact at my local news station & I am doing all these to do a photo book & story. The lady at the station asked if I would do something on it. Whether or not the station shares my book and story will be decided by her bosses...
Eva, good to hear from you......and thank you for your lovely comments on my blue flower and hydrangea photos. I appreciate it very much. I laid out from doing much on here for a little while, but I am getting back at it again....I hope. Thanks again.
Thanks again Eva for your comment on my car shots. My first car was one of these types of oldies. Wish I had it now. A car owner told me if I still had it & it was in perfectly restored condition, it would be worth a fortune today....UGH...live & learn
Thanks Eva. The comment on the flower shot is one of my more recent AND better HDR edits. I managed to have the dark background NOISE FREE!! YAY!! I have a bad habit of 'going over the top' in my editing. I am learning to not go to so much extremes and my results are improving.
